SummaryWith this project analysis methods shall be developed in order to derive the occupation level of car parks and the length of traffic jams. TerraSAR-X satellite data of different image modes and incidence angles will be compared to ground truth observations. Based on the backscatter properties in the images, the radar cross sections of different vehicle classes shall be derived. These class dependent functions are angle depended curves with associated variances. The project requires a good coordination of satellite orders and ground truth measurements. Due to the fact that for some of the sites for each incidence angle a single image stack shall be built, the number of scenes reaches a total of 111 acquisitions. The funding is ensured through two other projects.
